This church is a smaller scale of what you see in bigger cities. Still historic, still gothic, just a little smaller. Still very beautiful and worth seeing if in Pilsen.

If you wanna enjoy the view of Pilsen you have to climb up the stairs of the cathedral. It’s definitely worth it!

The centre point of the city sits this gothic cathedral. Grey looking from the outside and not big, impressive inside. Next to a large square and surrounded by old buildings housing hotels/bars and restaurants

St Bartholomews Cathedral is a very imposing structure in Plzen Centrum. A great place for night photography. Important to establish whether the cathedral will be open when visiting Plzen or closed for major restoration works. In September 2018 the cathedral was closed for restoration.
